Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS BYRDIE BAR?

Byrdie is a converted camper turned upscale full-service mobile bar. She brings a one of a kind experience to any celebration. 

WHY SHOULD WE HIRE BYRDIE?

Byrdie is here to raise the bar – and we’re not just talking about her height. A good bar is the gathering point at any event, and it goes beyond the booze…In fact it’s the number one most visited spot at your party. Far too often, people underestimate the importance of high-level cocktail and drink service. We all have that one crazy uncle who promises he can whip up a mean margarita, but leave the bartending to us – it’s kind of our thing. 

HOW FAR DO YOU TRAVEL?

We include 50 miles of round-trip travel from 48316 in the rental. However, Byrdie loves a good road trip! Events outside of our home base will be an additional charge of $1/mile there and back. Shoot us a message and we can customize a quote depending on your location.

WILL BYRDIE FIT IN OUR VENUE?

Byrdie measures in at 16ft long, 8ft 2in tall, and 7ft wide with her serving window extending another 3ft. We will need enough clearance to drive up with the tow vehicle, and pull away once she is disconnected. For help determining if she will fit in your event space, reach out to us. 

WHAT DOES BYRDIE REQUIRE FOR SET UP?

Byrdie requires flat ground for setup and service, and one standard outlet.  

WHAT KIND OF EVENTS CAN I RENT BYRDIE FOR?

You name it – we do it! Weddings, Birthdays, Rehearsal Dinners, Graduations, Corporate Events, Showers, Holiday Parties, Product Launches, Store Openings, Retirement parties, Backyard hangouts, Brunches, Family Reunions, etc. 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO RENT BYRDIE?

Every event is unique. Our pricing starts at $975 for the rental of Byrdie, but the packages will range depending on multiple variables.

DO YOU HAVE A LIQUOR LICENSE?

The state of Michigan does not allow a liquor license without a brick and mortar location, which means unfortunately, we can’t provide the booze. We will however work very closely with you to create your perfect drink menu and estimate how much beer, wine, and alcohol you will need. We can call the approved order into our preferred vendor, and get you your liquor at retail price, with no additional markup, but the host of the party will have to make this purchase separately from Byrdie Bar.

DO YOU CARRY INSURANCE?

Yes, we carry Liquor Liability and General Liability Insurance.

DOES MY PACKAGE INCLUDE ALCOHOL?

No. Based on our conversation in regards to your event, we’ll estimate how much beer, wine and alcohol you will need. You buy the alcohol, but we do all the work. We’ll prepare an online shopping list for you to look over that will include the best brands to buy that won’t break the bank, and once it’s approved and paid for, we handle the rest (including delivery to your event venue).

WHAT ABOUT MIXERS?

We buy and coordinate delivery of all mixers, syrups, fruit and drink ware for your event. The cost is included in your quote.

CAN YOU SERVICE A NON-ALCOHOLIC EVENT?

Absolutely! We are happy to provide services for any type of event and provide non-alcoholic beverages ranging from sodas, coffee, mocktails, milkshakes and more.

HOW EARLY DO I NEED TO BOOK?

The early BYRD gets the worm…er, cocktails in this case. We suggest reserving your date as soon as possible since we only have one camper. Even if your event is coming up soon, still reach out – we can always let you know if your date is still available. We do require a signed contract and a non-refundable 40% deposit to book your reservation, with the remaining balance due one month before your event date.

DO YOU PROVIDE BARTENDERS?

Byrdie Bar is staffed by a team of working bartenders who are TIPS certified and have worked in high-volume bars around the states. Our team is dedicated to their craft of cocktails and the important element of hospitality. We are here to not just serve you a delicious drink, but to make your meaningful event, memorable.

CAN I DO A CASH BAR?

Unfortunately, due to MI state liquor laws and regulations, we cannot allow a cash bar. Without a liquor license, we are unable to collect money in exchange for alcoholic beverages.
